SOUTHAMPTON CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Southampton Castle. A Norman motte and bailey was replaced by a stone castle by the latter 12th century, but the keep probably remained a timber structure until the end of the 13th century. A new keep with four turrets was built 1378-80. In 1618 the ruined castle was sold into private hands and in 1804 the ruins were incorporated into a 'Gothic' castle. This was removed in 1818 and the mound lowered in 1822. The site is now occupied by a block of flats though some remains such as the north bailey wall still survive. Scheduled.
